PČT

Artist

An outsider hip-hop duo from the streets of Ljubljana, PTČ represents the younger generation of local rappers and beatsmiths influenced by contemporary trailblazers, such as JPEG Mafia, Earl Sweatshirt and Denzel Curry. Their productions vary from pseudo-club bangers to abstract percussive beats, which constantly border on the experimental, but it’s their cryptic and abstract lyrics and moody flow in the Ljubljana slang that make them stand out among their peers. Enigmatic urban tales.

Pero Lovšin

Artist

Leta 1977 je s sociologom Gregorjem Tomcem ustanovil skupino Pankrti, ki je delovala do leta 1987 in je bila vzor kasnejši punk rock sceni in glasbenemu gibanju Novi val v bivši Jugoslaviji. Preden je začel s samostojno glasbeno kariero, je ustanovil rock skupino Sokoli. Skupaj z Vladom Kreslinom in Zoranom Predinom je leta 2000 za ljubitelje nogometa posnel še vedno najbolj prepoznavno slovensko športno himno Slovenija gre naprej. Za himno je tudi napisal besedilo. Ploščo iz leta 2000 Izlet in Happy Hour iz leta 2007 je snemal na Jamajki z legendarnimi The Wailers, skupino Boba Marleyja, in s producentom Brianom Jobsonom, ki je produciral tudi No Doubt in Eurythmics. Leta 2014 je izdal antologijo tekstov Moj pogled na svet, v kateri predstavi svoje najljubše in tudi sicer najbolj prepoznavne pesmi iz obdobja Pankrtov, Sokolov in samostojne kariere. Istega leta praznuje tudi s Pankrti in sicer v ljubljanskih Stožicah, kjer pred razprodano dvorano nastopi tudi skupaj z bivšim članom skupine Sex Pistols, Glenom Matlockom. Tega leta prejmejo Pankrti tudi plaketo mestne občine Ljubljana za posebne zasluge na področju kulture. In 1977, he established the band Pankrti together with his friend, sociologist Gregor Tomc. The band, which was disbanded in 1987, was a precursor to the later punk rock music scene and the New Wave in Ex-Yougoslavia. Before embarking on a solo career, Lovšin established another rock band ‘Sokoli’. In 2000, he recorded together with musicians Vlado Kreslin and Zoran Predin the popular stadium anthem ‘Slovenija gre naprej’ (Slovenia moves forward), which is well-known still today. He also wrote the lyrics. Both his albums ‘Izlet’ (Trip) from 2000 and ‘Happy Hour’ from 2007 were recorded in Jamaica in collaboration with the legendary Bob Marley’s band, The Wailers, and the producer Brian Jobson, who produced No Doubt and the Eurythmics. In 2014, Lovšin released an anthology of texts ‘Moj pogled na svet’ (My view of the world), in which he presents his favourite and most popular songs from the period of Pankrti, Sokoli and his solo career. The same year he celebrated his career with a concert at the sold-out venue Ljubljana Stožice and performed with Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols. Also in 2014, Pankrti received the Ljubljana Municipality plaque of merit for their special cultural contribution.
